Altenew Craft-A-Flower: California Giants

This month’s flower doesn’t disappoint! The large dense blossom is perfect as a focal point or added in multiples. The set also includes the hello word die along with a shadow.

My Zinnia Card

I die cut and built two pink zinnias as well as a bud and some leaves.

Next, I made a background panel by embossing cardstock with the Window Slats 3D embossing folder. I also added a light pink ink to the raised areas of the embossed panel.

Then I assembled the card raising some parts using foam tape for dimension. The flowers filled up my card beautifully and I didn’t feel the need for ay additional embellishments.
